My bruin has been rolled, flipped, gone through water up to the headlights. I beat on the suspension really bad when I came upon some whoops in the middle of the woods that I wasnt expecting. No problems so far except a bent rack and gas tank plastic from flipping it. And I nailed a rock going WOT and that just dented the yamaha aluminum skid plate, suprsided I didnt bend the frame how fast I was going. Overall seems to be holding up good. Looking at it its hard to believe its an 06 though. I have not been nice to it.
The kodiak 400 i thin the bruin would be neck and neck and yeah 421cc is far from 450cc on a atv. Honda has a new rancher fourtrax with a 421cc efi motor and the price is only couple hunderd diffrent then last yeasrs modle thats not a bad entree level atv price and efi honda is on the right track.
I HAVE a bruin 350 2wd and i have ridden a kodiak 400 i didnt feel that much diff between them and as for the uuh 421 or is that 450 lol THE ONLY THING THAT MAKES IT ANY BETTER IS THE FACT IT HAS A LOW GEAR which is great but id be pretty sure the 450 would beat it all around.But the 400 not much more there still a 2 valve motor with more metal to push which kills the extra power and still only has on foward gear...

Just wondering how much abuse your bruin has been through now and hows it holding up ?
I have put mine through about everything, and it has been running great. The only problem I have had with mine was getting a piece of dirt in the carb, but I think it has worked its way out now. I would reccomend one to anyone looking for an ATV in its class.
